Coding is not everyone cups of coffee, and the millennial doesn’t seem to understand the true potential of the PHP applications.

PHP is a server-side scripting language. that is used to develop Static websites or Dynamic websites or Web applications. PHP stands for Hypertext Pre-processor, which earlier stood for Personal Home Pages.

PHP scripts can only be interpreted on a server that has PHP installed.

The client computers accessing the PHP scripts require a web browser only.

A PHP file contains PHP tags and ends with the extension ".php".

It's application:

Dynamic websites (e.g. Apps4Rent, O365CloudExperts)
Web-based systems
Desktop systems
PHP scripts with a command line, etc.

PHP is a recurring-type acronym. It stands for PHP's Hypertext Preprocessor. It is used to design static or Dynamic webpages. It can also be used to design web-based simple games. It can only be understood by servers that have PHP installed on them.

PHP (Hypertext Pre-processor) is a scripting language design for developing dynamic web pages. While its principal purpose was server-side scripting, it has grown to incorporate a command line interface capability and can be used to develop client-side Graphical User Interface (GUI) applications as well.

PHP is a very popular open source programming language and is widely used to build internet based websites and systems. Originally, the acronym PHP meant Personal Home Page, but it was changed to be a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, which could be translated literally as a hypertext preprocessor. As its name suggests, the PHP script is rendered on the server, and only static content (such as HTML, CSS, Javascript, and others) is sent to the user’s browser.

Uses of php:

We can create static or dynamic websites using php.
Php is server side run time interpreted language and it is easy to learn.
It is an open source and free to use.
It supports all database structures like Oracle, SQL, MySQL etc.
Some of the frameworks like word press, la-ravel, woo commerce etc. built up with php.
It can be supports cross platform system so we can built php application in any operating system.

PHP is a general-purpose scripting language especially suited to web development. It was originally created by Danish-Canadian programmer Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994; the PHP reference implementation is now produced by The PHP Group.

Hope this information was helpful to you.

PHP is a scripting language designed for developing dynamic web pages. While its principal purpose was server-side scripting, it has grown to incorporate a command line interface capability and can be used to develop client-side Graphical User Interface (GUI) applications as well.
Applications of PHP
Web Pages and Web-Based Applications:
Any web page or web application developed in the current ecosystem needs to offer a high degree of customization, provide highly interactive user interface, be capable of performing online transactions and integrate with database systems. Through its three-tiered architecture which works on browser, server and database system in a linear manner, PHP offers a reliable solution to achieve these features. As a consequence, PHP is used by over 82% of websites for server side programming; over 244 million websites are built using PHP. Further, web-based enterprise applications and a multitude of Facebook apps are also scripted in PHP.

Web Content Management Systems:
PHP offers support to numerous databases including MySQL, Oracle and MS Access and is capable of interacting with other services using protocols such as IMAP, LDAP, POP3, NNTP, SNMP, HTTP and COM . As a result, PHP has been used for creating popular web Content Management Systems (CMS), including WordPress and its plugins, user-facing portion of Facebook, Joomla, Drupal, Moodle, Silverstripe, MediaWiki, Digg and others.

eCommerce Applications:
From small businesses to large enterprises, selling to online shoppers is now an indispensable requirement. Through use of frameworks like CodeIgniter and CakePHP, PHP allows creation of eCommerce applications in a swift and simple manner. Many of the highly used eCommerce platforms, such as OpenCart, Magento, PrestaShop, Zen Cart, AgoraCart and Ubercart, have all been created on PHP.

GUI-Based Applications:
While PHP is largely used as a scripting language for web-based applications, it is also possible to employ it for creating desktop graphical user interface (GUI) based applications. Tools like PHP-GTK 2, DevelStudio and ZZEE PHP GUI, allow scripting in PHP, compiling it into .exe capable of running standalone.

Create Flash:
An open source library, such as Ming, helps to create .SWF format movies which include most of the features of Flash – gradients, bitmaps (pngs and jpeg), morphs, shapes, text, button, actions and animations. Further, Flash elements like login-form and email form can be easily created and incorporated into dynamic web pages using PHP.

I hope this information will be helpful!
